PEF publicity on tree planting project

Farmers in Yorkshire and Derbyshire are teaming up to plant 6km of new hedges on their farms this winter as part of a collaborative nature project.

Hope Valley Farmers in Derbyshire and Bradfield Farmers Group in Yorkshire will plant 31,000 hedge plants and 1,500 trees.

This, combined with 10km already planted and 8km planned for next year, will make 24km in only four years.

The farmers are part of the Peakland Environmental Farmers (PEF), an environmental cooperative launched in 2023, representing 77 producers.

They are planting in line with PEF’s aims of biodiversity recovery and net zero carbon by 2040.
